We were always surrounded by books and words and poetry, all the fierce passions of the world bound in leather and vellum.

I'm definitely a romantic, I don't think life is really worth all the pain and effort and struggling if you don't have somebody that you love very much.

anne magill's work is so beautiful; it's vague & unfocused, like the fade of a good memory or blur of a dream. details are rare & yet the images come together clearly. movement & beauty in earthy tones. absolutely stunning <3

Me, before reading Dracula: Eh, I dunno about this Jonathan dude. He’s so boring in all the movies. Whatever, we’ll get to Drac soon.
Me, after reading Dracula: Jonathan Harker is an amazing character that deserves to be in the same considerations as Frodo Baggins and Edmund Pensive. He is a good-hearted and kind man that defied the typical male hero archetypes of the time. Jonathan isn’t strong enough to face the monster. Of course he isn’t. He’s one little guy against a living nightmare, but he’s saved by the love he has for his fiance. He is soft and kind and every adaptation has done him so dirty, making him stuffy and prudish to justify shipping Mina with Dracula who is more in line with the typical masculine ideals of the time. Also, trying to force a romance between Mina and her assaulter is really kind of fucked up. Jon and Mina Harker are wonderful and deserve the world.

i think we need to remember that learning isn't always 'aesthetic'. learning is sometimes so hard that you want to quit (and sometimes you do); learning can leave you drained of all of your energy; learning has its highs, but its lows as well, and not understanding something straight away can make you feel like a failure; learning is notes that you can understand, regardless of whether or not anyone else can; learning is for yourself, and yourself only.
